by honoring the victims of the sandy hook elementary school tragedy. this issue of the magazine is devoted to the lives they lived. to a parent, the childhood of a 6 or 7-year-old is rich beyond measure. but the incomprehensible horror and grief is for the milestones unshared. newtown is for the lives unlived and for those who lost loved ones, the sorrow is beyond capacity to know or comprehend. it will take a lifetime to work out. these issues were always popular among readers and difficult to assemble in the choice of who you select. >> it's hard to say and you do what they do. you start with lists and lists. you start months and months ago and ironically you make sure it's not a list of all the people that passed away and all the lives that were lived and unlived. we try to go over a list of people who passed away between our lead time and production time and try to match those lives to the writers and artists that work with the magazine and find ways to celebrate these lives. this issue is supposed to be a celebration of life. it's not supposed to be an acknowledgement of death. it's n
at eucerinus.com. ♪ >>> the shocking massacre at sandy hook elementary school was about many things. the horrors of gun violence and the easy availability of deadly weapons. the realities and the unfair stigma of mental illness, and the eternal vulnerability of our children. but it was also about something else. because something else happened in that school that was both tragic and amazing. teachers, young and middle-aged, from different backgrounds and from different walks of life, risked and in some cases gave their lives to protect the kids in their care. teachers and school administrators like dawn hochsprung, who lunged toward the gunman before being shot to death alongside the school's counselor. victoria soto, who hid half a dozen children in a closet before being killed herself while shielding her students. and anne marie murphy, whose body was reportedly found guarding the tiny bodies beneath her in an attempt to save them. we have had moments like this in this country where we haven't seemed to appreciate teachers much. we've seen battles over their union benefits and rig

, the same gun lanza used at sandy hook. of course lapierre would say this is a coincidence. but others would say this is perhaps a sign there are too many out there. >> these are first responders we're talking about. people who were throwing themselves into the line of danger to save someone's life. obviously it was an ambush. and at some point, policy makers -- we can poll any number of questions throughout the decades, but public policy makers, people who are in government need to look after public employees whether they're firefighters or teachers. and these kinds of weapons -- we're talking about urban situations as well. there's no argument, not a hunting argument, not a self-protection argument for this kind of weapon. and i think that's where the political debate is going to go shorply when it comes to assault weapons. >> if you go with lapierre about arming our teachers and schools, we should arm firefighters. where does it end? >> which no firefighters would want. and how are you supposed to check as well in a firefighter situation what the mental state of the person you're trying t

has proclaimed tomorrow a day of mourning for the victims of the sandy hook elementary school shooting. gun violence is not a suburban issue or an urban issue. it's an american issue. here, in chicago, gun violence is an epidemic. take a look at this map of the city. the yellow dots mark all of the shootings that have taken place in chicago this year alone. the red dots represent people killed by gun violence in 2012. all toll, 465 people have been killed in chicago this year. including 62 school-aged children. all of these murders and mass killings are tragedies. we've had almost segregated response. every child's life should have equal value. yet, too many people have been silent about the murders in places like chicago. the gun debate has been raging for a long time chlts but none of us have done enough. yesterday, the president was asked this question. >> this is not the first issue of horrific gun violence of your four years. where have you been? >> where has he been? where has the congress been? where has everybody been? gun violence wasn't part of the national debate in the pres

in sandy casey, the senator from pennsylvania, who is a classic pennsylvanian, in the past he's received a b plus or an a rating from the nra. he told "the philadelphia enquirer" he will come back for -- coming out for a new assault weapons ban and legislation banning high round magazines. he said his decision amounted to being summoned by your conscience. he said his wife had pressed him years ago joe clark, a great liberal senator, on this issue. first guy i ever voted for actually. now it's back. i know the people on the gun side of the argument, i know them closely. they will be out there vigilantly looking for any traitor they find, anybody who dares to vote for any kind of restriction, and any restrictions ends your virginity. you are the enemy. your thoughts? >> well, it's great that bob casey has come out for these things, but if all that happens at the end of the day is that we have a ban on a certain type of weapon or a certain type of magazine with a certain type of capacity, 100 bullets, let's say, we'll have failed here. you know, it's not just about the guns. it's how peopl
headlines. sandy's impact. buyers are back. and a big bake sale. joining me now forbes staff writer morgan brennan. let's get to hurricane sandy which took a toll of on consumer spending. "consumer reports" says spending fell in october after rising in september. the gdp was higher than estimated. i never can quite figure out how they can both be true and whether or not this continues in coming months. >> that's a great question. i think we need to start with the revised number for the third quarter. the reason we saw gdp growth in the third quarter was because businesses were restocking their inventory. an government spending increased about 9.5%. not sustainable indicators of economic growth in the long term. consumer spending makes up about 70% of economic growth. the fact we saw that come down in october and actually the fact in november the early numbers despite a robust holiday shopping weekend are still not looking so good is why we're seeing economists predict a weak fourth quarter economic number. and we're actually seeing numbers as low as 1% which would be really terrible. >> no
of the sadness in newtown and sandy hook is they did everything they could. nobody opened the door for the guy. they did everything in their power and still this happened. in the immediate aftermath on friday of this horror, everyone talked about gun control pretty quickly, and people said, you know, we ought to do something, but nothing is going to change. the answer was because of the political power of the nra. i guess i would ask you, joe, as someone who has held office, what are the political costs of crossing the nra? how serious is it? mayor bloomberg has called that a complete myth. what's the problem? >> i can tell you in 1994 i ran, and nobody knew who i was. the nra worked overtime to defeat me because they didn't know me. they knew a state legislator they wanted in, and they worked overtime and spread lies about me. things that were factually false and went after me aggressively and i got 62% of the vote. i think they're very powerful. who knows maybe 3, 4, 5% of the 38% of the vote my opponent got maybe it was people that believed the stuff that the nra sent out. it all depends. y
not only because of the election, maybe firms sitting on their hands but superstorm sandy. still, guys, the number much better than expected. few tuesday, which were down right before the numbers hit, turned around. they are now higher fractionally so a big turn for stock futures and better than expected jobs number for november. i can dig in more once i get to the website. but those are your headline numbers. better than expected. >> gillian, better than expected. a lot of people blamed hurricane sandy again but that's encouraging. >> i have two economists, a liberal, who both said it was going to be somewhere between 80,000 and 100,000 jobs -- say that go sandy was worth 80 -- negatively 80,000 to 100,000. you take 146,000 and this could have been a 200-plus number. >> it's interesting because it ties in with consumer data we've been seeing which actually, you know, is not great. it's not buoyant, but it's not bad. and you look at the fact what american households have been doing recently with debt and the degree of debt they've been repaying, sort of deleveraging. you add it togethe

it all. >> this next picture is superstorm sandy. the president with mike bloomberg and janet napolitano touring the damage. you can just imagine how grim that tom donlon -- i'm not sure if tom is also in the picture. you can see what they're looking at. >> right. you know, the one that -- he's not in this picture, but what jumps in my mind is the criticism that chris christie got over saying nice things when president obama went up to new jersey to tour the devastation. i just think the seriousness that's conveyed in this picture, i almost never say this. there are things in which politics takes a very far back seat. this is one of them. >> take a look at the next picture. we were talking a few minutes ago about possible cabinet choices. there's dennis mcdone noug on the right and jack lou is if he's the treasury secretary and tom lon lan, the national security adviser. the president is so comfortable with these insiders. these are great pictures by pete suza. look at air force one. the president is in marine one coming in behind. there's air force one that's a wonderful picture. finall
for the last number of weeks in hurk hurricane sandy doing 18-hour days, i don't really think that would be a problem. >> your hair. >> if you were a tree, how fat would you be? that brings us to another hard-hitting edition of the spin cycle. and you can say a lot about barbara walters, a lot about these questions, but i actually do -- i'm kind of interested in talking a little bit about, yeah, christie and got clinton on the list and weather it's barbara walters talking about them or anybody else media, these are names we are going to be hearing about a ton for the next three, four years, you know, viable contenders for 2016, all of that the clinton one is interesting. my sort of take of the day of this probably need a take of the day of hill right next four years, today, it's this. i was struck that david axelrod, the president's top political adviser are, at a forum in washington, the exact quote, asked about hillary clinton in 2016 she would be in a very strong position. and it really strikes me that typically, the tradition is you got a -- joe bind wants to be president of the unit

calls pornographic client. >> i think he spat in the faces of the families of the victims of sandy hook. i think he stood up there and showed such tremendous ugliness and the real fantasy here is that this legion of armed volunteers, i believe, asa hutchinson said -- the fantasy is that they are going to somehow avert what we saw as opposed to controlling the stock of semiautomatic weapons. so i think he can change the subject all he wants. we've seen a lot of changing the subject this week. everything blaming from lack of god to feminism, but i think everybody really understands that if a madman has -- if they happen to be legal, then they understand what's really happening here. >> i would like to point out that we are in a family culture that has video games. you know -- >> what? >> i know. it's shocking. i'm about to break some news here. you know, the grand theft auto was created by a company in england. >> they have them in japan too. >> no. >> how many people know their teachers and their teacher's guards well enough to arm all of the -- even if it was -- >> gun violence doesn't
the one in sandy hook elementary last week. some historically pro-gun lawmakers came out in support of the assault weapons ban. can they rally their colleagues to act and act swiftly? big question for me tonight, and with me tonight are msnbc political analyst ron reagan and real clear politics reporter erin mcpike. i was stunned to see bobby casey, the senator from pennsylvania, who is a classic pennsylvanian, in the past he's received a b plus or an a rating from the nra. he told "the philadelphia enquirer" he will come back for -- coming out for a new assault weapons ban and legislation banning high round magazines. he said his decision amounted to being summoned by your conscience. he said his wife had pressed him to rethink his position on gun safety in the wake of newtown. he said the power of the weapon, the number of bullets that hit each child, that was so, to me, just so chilling, it haunts me. it should haunt every public official. if those two bills come before the senate, i will vote for both. that's a risky, strong position by bob casey. >> he's not the only one. joe m
they really mean? and the gun battle rages on. new reports on why nothing may get done even after the sandy hook tragedy. >>> a massive tax hike and spending cuts -- republicans and democrats continue to point fingers in opposite directions, hinting that talks could go into the new year. >> are we going over the cliff? >> i believe we are, and i think the president is eager to go over the cliff for political purposes. he senses a victory at the bottom of the cliff. >> we only have nine days left here. when are we going to get serious about actual solutions? i would welcome john to tell me. he says he wants a solution. give us one, john. >> meanwhile, president obama is spending christmas in hawaii where he and the first lady attended the holiday memorial service for the late u.s. senator from daniel inouye. >> white house correspondent kristen welker. kristen, obviously they always say the white house travels with the president wherever he is. that's where the white house is. the president, though, is enjoying vacation, but still continuing to keep tabs on the fiscal cliff negotiations, cor
tragedies have. i think of hurricane sandy, which also promoted the idea of we must be a community, not just individualistic actors, but it's very important what dr. emmanuel said. i haven't looked at what this grand bargain may lead to, but if it leads to further cuts in mental health funding and also the irony that in states where you have governors, for example, who are pushing hard for consealed weapons, those are the very states where people, the governors, have pushed back on medicaid, which as dr. emmanuel said, is so critical for so many with members of the jury illness. i think the conversation about mental illness is critical. what i would just say is don't let it lead to a resignation or a turning away from the importance of gun safety because that has to remain fused in a sense. treat mental illness. don't criminalize those, but more treatment, care, and attention to making sure that you don't get that bushmaster weapon in the hands of someone. think of pumping, what is it, three to four rounds into each small child. i mean, without that, it's still dangerous, but you reduce the
